Peterā dzīvenote is a series of shorts on YouTube by Davis Anderson. Each episode follows the humorously surreal life of a man named Peter and a small set of recurring characters. Peter narrates the less-than-sixty-second shorts in Latvian, though English subtitles are provided for earlier episodes (and more are on the way).
Peterā dzīve contains examples of:
- Can't Hold His Liquor: Seemingly nobody in the series can handle drinking Brew without passing out instantly. The series exploits this for humorous effect.
- Continuity Nod: Peter takes a photo of himself with a naked Janis in makķerēananote . Future episodes that occur in Peter's room have that photo posted on the wall.
- Fishing for Sole: Peter uses the brew as bait in makķerēananote , and manages to hook a naked Janis.
- Genie in a Bottle: Peter encounters one on the street in lampanote .
- Motor Mouth: The narration in each short is very fast. As a result, the events in the shorts go by unexpectedly quickly, adding to the humour.
- Past-Life Memories: In zobu pastanote , Peter drinks Brew mixed with toothpaste and discovers that he was a cactus in his past life.
- Running Gag: Often, characters that drink (or sometimes even touch) a bottle of Brew will pass out and wake up naked in inexplicable places.
- This gag is Double Subverted in pamoanāsnote , when a naked Peter wakes up and grabs a bottle of Brew. He suddenly wakes up fully clothed, only to pick up another bottle and wake up naked again.
- Unusual Euphemism: Except for the first episode, called ņabisnote , the alcoholic drink is always referred to as "the brew" in subtitles. The bottles of Brew are always labelled dzira, meaning "swill."
- What Did I Do Last Night?: Getting drunk and waking up naked in strange situations is a common occurrence in the series, often triggered by drinking "the brew".
